So... how was everyone's weekend?

Mine was nice! I did a ton of yard work and I am totally sore from it. We didn't go to any backyard bbq's, my Dad cooked a turkey dinner on Saturday though complete with stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy! I made a cake. I know, it's kinda weird in the middle of summer, but you get sick of summer time food by now. Plus it wasn't too hot, so his kitchen was nice and cool. I did see fireworks. Ya gotta, it's the 4th of July!

I really thought I would have a pair of socks to show today. But I don't. This is as far as I got:

I'm not worried though. I have all month to finish it. And I am getting a little tired of socks.

Hmmmm I wonder why I didn't get a lot done on my sock. Could it be I started another project?

Why yes! I did!

Between yard work and breaks from yard work I managed to get this far on the Fabulous February Lady Sweater

Holy smokes! That is pretty far! I am knitting this with 100% cotton yarn. It's going to be a beast of a sweater, but I really like how it is coming out. This may actually fit me AND the girls! I am making sure of it!

Now that's a whole lot of sweater! I'm so starting this when I get a few more things off the needles.

A turkey dinner does sound good right now. Glad you had a fun and productive long weekend :)

OH.MY.GOSH! I have to knit that February Lady Sweater! I love it!

Love that pale grayish blue color and every time I see that sock I fall in love with the yarn! Feb. Lady Sweater is in my queue but I'm FORCING myself to get 50% of Lizard Ridge done before starting anything else. I'm almost there...
